Married, divorced, re-married, (and sometimes re-divorced) - all to the same person.

Bringing a new meaning to on-again, off-again, here is our top ten list of celebrities who renounced their wedding vows, only to later make a second trip down the aisle with their former spouse.

Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon
Former Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson first married movie producer Rick Salomon in 2007, but their wedded bliss lasted only two months before the pair divorced. They recently rekindled their relationship and remarried in January this year.

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton
Cleopatra co-stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton married (and divorced) twice - the first time from 1964 to 1974, and their 1975 marriage lasted only a year. The pair were known for their tempestuous relationship, with declarations of undying love being followed by roaring alcohol-fuelled fights. Despite their second divorce, the pair remained devoted to each other until Burton's death in 1984. Taylor was married eight times to seven men, while Burton was married five times to four wives.

Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson
Mel Griffith first set eyes on actor Don Johnson when she was just 14, and he was 22, on the set of her mother's film. After turning 19, Griffith married Johnson in Las Vegas, but the couple split six months after the wedding. In 1989, after both having other relationships and a child with their respective partners, the pair married again. Although they had another child together, their second marriage ended in 1994.

Larry King and Alene Akins
Larry King has been married eight times, so it's not surprising one of his wives made a repeat trip down the aisle with the TV show host. First married to Playboy bunny Alene Akins in 1961, the pair divorced two years later, only to reunite in 1967, but divorce again in 1972.

Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner
Hollywood child star Natalie Wood first saw Robert Wagner when she was 10 and he was 18, as they passed each other in the Fox Studios hallway where they were both filming. Wood reportedly told her mother then she would marry Wagner, and did - twice. Their first marriage took place in 1957, when Wood was 19, before divorcing in 1962. They reconciled and remarried a decade later, having both married and divorced other partners in the intervening years. Their second marriage lasted until Wood's mysterious death in 1981, when she was found drowned a mile away from their boat near Santa Catalina Island, California. Wood's death at age 43 was declared an accident for 31 years, and reclassified as cause ''undetermined'' after a new investigation in 2012.

Eminem and Kim Mathers
On-again, off-again since high school, the couple married for the first time in 1999, and divorce proceedings were filed in 2000. Detroit rapper Eminem ripped into his wife in a disturbing song ''Kim'' on his 2000 album The Marshall Mathers LP, and she sued for defamation as the song depicted her violent death. The couple was estranged for years but reconciled in 2006 and remarried - this time for just three months before they split and later divorced.

Pink and Carey Hart
Pink met motocross racer Carey Hart at the 2001 X Games in Philadelphia. After a brief separation in 2003, she proposed to Hart during a motocross race in 2005, by holding up a ''Will You Marry Me? I'm serious!'' sign on a pit board. Hart pulled over to accept on the spot when he noticed the sign, but Pink made him finish the race because she wouldn't marry a loser. The pair married in Costa Rica in January 2006.
Following months of rumours, Pink announced in February 2008 she and Hart had separated. The lyrics to her single So What released the same year were based on the couple's separation, and Hart made cameo appearances throughout the video, although Pink said he had not heard the song before arriving to shoot the music video. The couple filed for divorce, but never signed the papers they had drawn up, and made a second trip down the aisle to renew their vows in May 2009.

Sean Penn and Robin Wright
After having two children together, the stars tied the knot in 1996. Their marriage was going strong until they filed for divorce in December 2007, only to reconcile a few months later. Penn then filed for divorce again in 2009, only to withdraw once again when he and Wright reunited. Just two months later, it was Wright who filed for divorce, and their split became official in 2010. Although they never remarried after their split, their tumultuous break-ups and make-ups earned them a place on our list - they certainly played the divorce card more than once.

Judge Judy and Judge Jerry
The Honourable Judge Judith Sheindlin - best known for her scathing judgements in her televised courtroom - must have made a rare error in judgement when she divorced husband (and fellow judge) Jerry Sheindlin. The pair re-judged their decision and got back together a year later, becoming each other's second, and also third, spouse.

Jean Claude Van Damme and Gladys Portugues
"The Muscles from Brussels" has been married to American actress and former bodybuilder Gladys Portugues since 1999, making her the martial arts action film star's fifth wife. Before that, she was also his third wife - the couple first married in 1987, divorced in 1992 after he had an affair with a co-star, and remarried in 1999.
